World's Oldest Flute

It was a big surprise and a great discovery that for as long as 35,000 years ago, early modern human already know how to play flute which was made from bird-bone. The explorer found the ivory flute from the cave of Hohle Fels in southwestern Germany. Many believe that the earliest modern humans in Europe, around 35,000–40,000 years ago, already had a well-established musical tradition. It was evident that around that year humans has magnificent brain capability and it keeps on growing until now. Particularly in Europe, the discover of bird-bone flute were clearly says that early modern humans in Europe were culturally modern.
